Sonoma Coast Wine

 

The Sonoma Coast AVA is an extensive part of Sonoma County, California. It stretches between San Pablo Bay to Mendocino along the Pacific coast, east to the coastal ranges. The climate created by such close proximity to the Pacific Ocean is that of heavy rainfall, cool winds and heavy fog. Most of the vineyards are planted into the ridges, keeping them as far above the fogline as possible as well as maximizing their sun exposure. 
 
There are certain varietals that respond well to such conditions, particularly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but the region is also known for its Rieslings and Syrah. 
 
The Fort Ross AVA is included within the Sonoma Coast.

  • La Crema Chardonnay Sonoma Coast 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Round and firm fruit notes of white peach, ripe melon and green apple on the nose with tangerine and citrus rounding out the aromas. Juicy pear and apple notes in the mouth with chunky melon and just a touch of grapefruit with an orange blossom and cream finish. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon, pear and green apple fruit aromas with soft biscuit notes and a touch of cream. Pleasant mousse in the mouth with honeyed apple and tart pear notes with more lemon and grapefruit notes blossoming towards the finish that lingers for quite a while with notes of pineapple and vanilla cream.

  • Jemrose Foggy Knoll Vineyard Grenache 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly dark purple in the glass. Fruit/berry heavy on the nose. Really not over-the-top fruit on entrysome blackberry, some suggestion of lemon in the background. Certainly not fruity sweet. Sufficient acid to give it a good backbone. Im not normally a Grenache guy, but I like this one. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Zinfandel Rocky Knoll 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Reddish purple color. Bright nose of stone fruit. Sure enough, serious ripe red plum flavor on the tip of the tongue. Some hint of bitter spiceclove-like. However, that may be the tannin. This is, pretty much, a tannic beast. However, it also has nice tart acid. I am seriously liking this wine, right now. However, the tannin and acid com... Read More
